Semi-raw Vegan S'mores Cheesecake 🍫🍰
My nephew requested this for his bday. I haven't made a cheesecake in over a year. I'm already ready to make another one.. 😼
This cake is made up of raw soaked cashews, unsweetened almond milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon and lime juice and pure vanilla extract. The crust is made up of graham crackers and it's topped with @mydandies vegan mini marshmallows, @enjoylifefoods mini chocolate chips and some of my homemade chocolate frosting (which is why it's semi-raw).I want to thank all of you who played my little guessing game on IG stories. I loved how curious you all were and some of the guesses planted seeds in my head for new cheesecake flavors to try. Many of you thought this was going to be a lemon or key lime cake due to the juice that goes in it. But the lemon lime juice gives the cake a nice tangy flavor like a traditional cake would have. Who wants a slice? 🙋🏻#rawcheesecake#smores#lherbemuse

▪️Bang it all on a plate 👌🏻
I've been all sorts of grumpy this week, for the obvious reasons and the not so obvious. From sad to angry to anxious. It's so easy to get in the habit of just going and moving and not taking the time to breathe and love oneself (or at least the practice of learning to.) I've also been feeling that this community can often skip over the harder stuff. We present ourselves or brand as a specific thing. We follow trends and everything begins to blur. It's important to recognize this. It can be exhausting to always present yourself as something clean and positive and polished or always compare yourself to another. So today, I just want to stare at this pretty pink wall. Because it's something out there in the world that exists, in perfect beauty. And that glow makes me feel warm today. I hope it can warm you too.
